For the uninitiated, GTA V’s Director Mode turns the game into a freeform playground, allowing players to perform their own scenes, design sets, create characters and edit gameplay footage to produce stunning little movies. We’ve already seen a selection of superb shorts, not least the poignant Super Clown, in which a Joker-style villain guns his way through the city whilst seemingly chewing over the consequences of his actions.

The footage is also spectacularly violent, but you knew that already.

You’ll be hard pressed to churn out something as brilliant as this, however…
